Broadland High Becomes Directly Licensed Centre for Duke of Edinburgh Award

Posted on Mar 8, 2016

Broadland High School is now officially a Directly Licensed Centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Keith Johnson, who is the leader for the Duke of Edinburgh at the school, attended the award ceremony at Dunston Hall on the 3rd March.

The awards were presented by the Queen’s official representative in Norfolk, 1/Lts Richard Jewson Esq, JP, The Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk. Other notable dignitaries were Phil Brown, The DofE Central England regional area director (and Olympic Silver Medal Relay Runner for Great Britain), and Lorna Cousins who is the marketing director of Bernard Matthews.

As a Directly Licensed Centre (DLC), the school is classed as a Licensed Organisation which holds a licence to deliver DofE programmes to young people on its own premises. This continues the great work we do in school, allowing students to participate and succeed at the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
